Ohio (AP) -Tin' grim two-day search for Debbie Bappen ended Friday night when a reporter found her body under a porc h just a block from her home. Police say a 14-year-old boy who earlier had re-ported finding the girl’s shoe in a culvert has admitted killing her. Police Chief James Finan of suburban Fairfax said at first George Rickey Jr. denied knowing how the four-year-old girl’s body got under his porch, but broke down a few minutes after police began questioning him. Finan said the youth admitted Dems Face Platform Decisions ’ ATLANTIC CITY (AP) -Democratic platform writers were expected today to keep hands off the sizzling controversy in Congress and elsewhere over the Supreme Court’s legislative reapportionment decision A key official cif the platform committee, which is at work in this Democratic National Convention city, said privately he thinks it would be a mistake to try to butt in on an issue on which the Senate and the House already are at loggerheads. Some committee members however, were strongly urging a stand in support of the court's ruling that seats in both houses of state legislatures must be ap portioned on the basis of population, but they appeared to be outnumbered by those in favor of skipping a plank on this subject . There also were indications that, in the interest of party harmony, the* committee may refrain from: —Naming any organizations in a plank denouncing extremism —Involving itself in the depute over the Supreme Court’s ban on compulsory religious exercises in the public schools The committee, under the chairmanship of Rep Carl Albert of Oklahoma, the House Democratic* leader, has reached the decision-making stage aftei five days of hearings that ended Fridav.

Mississippi Dispute Gets Airing Today Husband: ‘ We have two cars. two TV sets, two bathrooms. How come we can’t have two opinions around here?” ATLANTIC CITY (AP) - A dispute over whether an all-white delegation or a predominantly Negro one is entitled to represent Mississippi at the Democratic National Convention next week gets an airing today before the Convention Credentials Committee. The dispute, one of the hottest facing the Democrats, e o u I d erupt into a bitter floor fight Monday night when the convention opens. Young Philo Driver Fined Charles G. Finton, about 20. of RD 2. New Philadelphia, today was fined $10 and costs by Judge Clarence W. Ferrell in County Central District Court on a charge of reckless operation According to a state patrolman. Finton admittedly reached a speed of from 70 to 75 miles per hour in trying to pa^s another car on Route 93, north of Baltic. Fulton told Ferrell he had tried several times to pass the car, but each time the other driver (who remained unidentified) had speeded up and finally braked his car suddenly. Finton’s car swerved first to one side and then to the other striking the other vehicle. Both cars ended up off the road on opposite sides, but no one was seriously injured. “Personally. I think I was right in speeding up in order to clear the car on that type ot road.” Finton insisted this morning, saying it was the only way he could get around. “J figured he had had his fun after he pulled ahead of me a couple of times,” Finton said. Ferrell told the youth that he was letting him off with a minimum fine but warned him that he should not be “badgered” into reckless operation by the faults of another driver. Headed by David Lawrence, the HO - member credentials committee will hear both sides of the Mississippi dispute this afternoon. The committee also may have to wrestle with the problem of whether Alabama's delegation is entitled to be seated since that state, the home of Gov. George C. Wallace, has made the state’s electors “independent Democrats.” which might conflict with convention rules governing party loyalty. In the Mississippi case a predominantly Negro group calling itself the Mississippi Freedom Democratic party is challenging the right of the regular Democratic party to cast the state’s 24 convention votes. There have been threats of a walkout by some Southern delegations if the convention seats the Freedom party group and excludes the regular party group. One suggestion is that beth groups be seated and each group be given 12 votes.

Page It* Congo Army Wins Battle For Bukavu LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP)—The Congolese army has won a major victory that may provide Premier Moise Tshom* be’s struggling government with a psychological boost in its fight against Communist-backed insurgents. The government had control today of the heavily damaged northeastern city of Bukavu after a three-day battle that left at least 300 dead, including perhaps 7 Europeans. Tough ex-Katangan gendarmes, airlifted in U.S. transport planes, joined Congolese troops in scattering the rebels and regaining control of the capital of Kivu Province. In Washington, the State Department said today that three Americans reported missing were alive and well in neighboring Rwanda. Details were lacking but officials said this information had been received from the U.S. Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda. The battle marked the army’s first key military success in months after repeated rebel advances. It enabled the central government to maintain at least a toehold in the eastern Congo, where rebels control the* big cities of Albertville and Stanleyville Woody Russell To Accept VFW Award To Ohio Dover street and downtown pole lights were out briefly last night due to some confusion with the manual and automatic control •switches at the Municipal Elwood (Woody) Russell of Light Plant.    New Philadelphia who The lights were turned on    has served as Americanism manually, earlier than usual be-    chairman for the Department cause of the early darkness,    of Ohio during the past year, The “blackout" occurred when    will be in the limelight Monday engineers switched to the auto-    during the 65th national conven- mat ic without allowing the pro-    tion of the Veterans of Foreign per time for the switchover.
